In a lifetime, women go through many complex hormonal changes that have profound effects physically, mentally, and emotionally.
With such complexity, why is it that conventional medicine takes such a simplistic approach to treating it?
You are unique and I recognize that your health and wellbeing requires an individualistic approach. From my assessment, lab tests, and personalized health plans, my goal is to have you feeling your best. Some common women’s health issues that I see in clinical practice that can be addressed using a natural, integrative approach include:
Natural fertility support aims at figuring out the missing pieces for infertility and uses nutritional supplements, acupuncture, dietary changes, and lifestyle optimization through the removal of obstacles. We also often do testing to try to identify causes that might be contributing to fertility difficulties.
Pregnancy & Postpartum
There’s no better time to see me than during pregnancy and the postpartum stage. Your nutritional needs, body, and hormones are changing.
Naturopathic medicine provides safe and healthier alternatives to common complaints during pregnancy, after pregnancy, and to ensure optimal health and prepare your body for childbirth.
How often have you been told that your blood work is in the normal range, only to find that you are just not feeling good? Unfortunately, misdiagnosis is common in the management of hypothyroidism. Thyroid physiology is complex, which is why I take holistic approach and consider your symptoms. And yes, we can test the ENTIRE thyroid panel, not just TSH.
I have a very different approach to restoring hormonal balance. I appreciate the interconnectedness of hormones and all of the bodily functions they influence. When one system goes out of balance, so do others. Specific hormonal and thyroid issues include: PMS, endometriosis, PCOS, menopause, menstrual cramps and irregularities, and more!
Pelvic Floor Therapy
Our pelvic floor muscles shouldn’t be ignored unless you want to risk incontinence, prolapses, sexual dysfunction, and pain – you know, all the “fun stuff”. It’s time to fall in love and learn all about your pelvic floor so that you can prevent or treat concerns. And no, it’s not just about kegels!
Acne, eczema, psoriasis, fungal infections, rashes, and premature aging. Naturopathic dermatology means that I address skin complaints through providing you with a treatment plan that addresses skin concerns from the inside out. This may include dietary changes, nutritional supplementation, and topical skin care protocols based on individual needs.
